Riham Toulan Technical Artist
In this session we will have a closer look at : Ryse character rigging pipeline. Character physics and Secondary animations Examples of useful rigging tools developed along production.
Moving the pipeline to Maya About 2o unique characters without variations Limited resources Has to be Fast, efficient and modular
Python generated Modular Rigging Modular Rigging : The process of creating similar rig components that can be used on different body parts and skeleton types
Maya plug-in Rig Parts Character Parts Character
Metadata Node Network Describes the relationships between nodes Keeps track of data Easier to make rigging and animations tools
Instant Creation Rigs consistency Marking Menus, space switching, Ik/Fk snap etc.. Fast iterations One tool set Multiple copies of the rig in one secene
Secondary Animations & Cloth
Less work for the animators 100% runtime simulation Animation Blending just in case.
Pendula Massive sphere Fixed Rod Changes orientation of joint Constrained by cones types Good for accessories, hair and ropes ClickMe ClickMe ClickMe ClickMe Springs Massive sphere Elastic rope Changes translation of joint Constrained by a scalable spheres Good for body fat simulations and slide effect ClickMe ClickMe
Physicalized joints not enough Hard to setup for a closed mesh like a skirt New in-game cloth System Lots of skirts prototyping
We could not apply the simulation on the render meshes We could not support layers Real Time Wrap Deformer Using a Simulation mesh Vertex colors
Phys proxies setup in Maya Tied to the skeleton Bad coverage Slow Process
Phys Files Separate Cloth Collision proxies Multiple Proxies Real time Feedback Debugging options
60 Joints Follows Character Movement Animation Control Layers Of Deformations Scalable ClickMe ClickMe
